Bio and Links
Bio Photo "De mortuis nil nisi bonum"--Chilon of Sparta

Although I live in Oklahoma, many of the memorials I have created and tombstone photos I have added are for the counties of Clay, Dickinson, Riley and Geary in Kansas. Please visit my homepage for Clay County genealogy--it contains links to the other counties mentioned, too.

I am happy to add information to memorials, and will transfer to relatives. Please use the "Edit" button at the top right of the memorial to request transfers or to add information. If requesting a transfer, please note how this person is related to you--not because of any FAG policy, just because I'm nosy!

I want to give a special shout out to Emily for the many obituaries she has submitted for Fairlawn Cemetery in OKC. She doesn't want credit, so I won't give her last name, but I know that I and especially the families of those whose obits she sent appreciate it!

As winter brings a longer night,
And women read by candlelight,
They come to know, like sun, like rain,
Nothing lasts, not love nor pain.
O Time! O Time! O thieving Time!
Give me back my stolen years.
--"The Ghosts of Versailles"

RE: Amanda Williams
Yes, we talked on briefly on gmail in 2011 and 2012 about the Downs. I'm Amber if that helps you remember. Every once in a while I try to pick up Amanda and work on her to no avail I'm sorry to say.

RE: Amanda Williams
No I haven't. I guess I was hoping that someone had found her family. I can't seem to find them. Let me know if you run across that information. Thanks,

RE: Amanda Williams
I have the obit.
I guess I should have been more specific about wondering where she was born. I haven't been able to figure that one out. The census information shows 1870 b. Ohio, 1880 b. Ohio (father Ohio mother Ohio), 1885 b. Indiana, 1895 b. Missouri, 1900 b. Iowa (father France mother Germany), 1910 b. Missouri (father Ohio mother Ohio), 1915 b. Kansas, 1920 b. Iowa (father Ohio mother Virginia).
It's the craziest thing!! I didn't know if there was a birth cert or some other piece of paper that would give some clarity.

Do you remember how you came about the place of her birth? 1849 - 1920

RE: Cowing, Greenwood Cemetery, Clay Center KS
Thank you Sheryl. I already have obits and/or other documents for John Scott Cowing, his wife Martha (Haden)Cowing, three of their children Eva May Cowing, Infant Cowing, and Florence Martha (Cowing) Worsley, (wife of Robert Ford Worsley), and two grandchildren children (children of Florence and Robert) Henry Scott Worsley and Lawrence Worsley, all of whom, Greenwood Cemetery records show, were buried in that same lot along with Edith and John Ware for whom the lot was originally purchased. The only info I do not have is this infant's name.

I questioned Mr Utley's entry because John Scott also had a son John Samuel Cowing and a grandson John Samuel Cowing, Jr. I thought perhaps he confused one of these two names as this infant or misread the entry as "J.S. Cowing infant of" or perhaps he actually found the initials or name of this infant. Mr. Utley did send a reply indicating his source.
